My interpretation: Perhaps revealing again my profound and wondrous gaps in theosophical knowledge, I'll loosely translate Monad as soul. The soul being a portion of God is perfected, but it initially it has no vehicle to carry it. Slowly a vehicle in the material world develops - initially gross, but with evolvement more and more refined. It is the *vehicle* which requires the lessons on how to "embody" the soul. In eternal time, the "body" reflects the brightness which animates it.
